The Tiny Star

This touching and timeless story combines, for the first time, the talents of author Mem Fox with the heartwarming illustrations of acclaimed Orange artist Freya Blackwood.

A beautiful and charming story about the journey of life

Freya Blackwood is one of the most talented children’s illustrators in the world today. Her stunning and iconic illustrations perfectly capture the warmth and complexity of growing up. While warm and classic, her style has a unique quality that renders her work instantly recognisable. The pathos of her characters is a joy to behold, and her work has deservedly captured international attention and a swag of awards and nominations. These include the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal (2010), which is the UK’s most prestigious award for children’s illustration, and the CBCA Picture Book of the Year Award – Early Childhood (2007).
